Taking It Easy


Well, I had to go to the emergency room Sunday with the fast, irregular heartbeat again. Thank the Lord I did not have to stay, and my heart went back into normal rhythm. But I am taking a stronger medicine, and am slowed down even more. So I thought I would just show some more pictures I have taken of all the beauty around.
PS. I took the pictures before this episode.

Little bird having a drink ~





The sky was just so beautiful the other evening. It is a shame all those lines are in the pictures.











I spotted some bright flowers under my neighbor's tree and had to go over to see them. I was so surprised to see these little primroses ( I believe) blooming.





Thanks for looking at my pictures again. And I appreciate your prayers.

So sorry you were not well. The ER is no fun. Praying for you even now, dear friend.

Lovely photos, Cathy.

Nancy said...

I do hope you are feeling better soon, and take it easy for sure.

Adrienne said...

Still praying for you, my friend. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos. I get annoyed with the power lines in the way of my photos of the gorgeous sky and cloud formations from my front yard. I have a front-row seat but those pesky lines don't do it justice! ~Adrienne~

I sorry you had that experience. I always say that the worse place to be when you're feeling poorly is the Emergency Room.

Thank you, dear friends, for your sweet comments and prayers. I am trying to adjust to this stronger medicine. Deb, my doctor tells me it is common ( afib), but it surely does not feel like it.

Cathy, I didn't know you had that rhythm problem with your heart. A lady from our church as it also. So does the son of a friend of mine. Every now and then I think I have it.

I'm glad it worked out for you the other night. Must be scary when you have to go to the ER. Keep resting for a bit and try not to get stressed. Maybe you better stop reading about you-know-who (wink). (Hard not to though, he's ever in our face.)

I always love your nature pictures! Gorgeous flowers. They surely brighten up our lives, don't they.

Keeping you in prayer, sis . . .

CONNIE'S THOUGHTS FROM THE HEART said...

I loved the pictures, They are all really quiet beautiful. I am glad that you felt like taking them. They were a blessing.

I have had you in prayers and I am sure that the Lord is taking care of you. Take care and know that you are thought about and loved. connie

Beautiful pics! I hope you are feeling okay. I am on atenolol for fast heart rate, so I know what you are going through! Prayers are with you!

I am glad that they didn't have to keep you in the hospital, but were able to give you some medicines to stabilize your heart.

Sunday night my heart beat so hard that it kept me away all night. I am thinking it is the eye drops I take for glaucoma that is causing it. I thought it was the pain meds but I have since stopped them. I have stopped the eye drops so we will see what will happen. Medicines sometimes cause strange side effects on me.

I do hope that this medicine will help you immensely, my friend.

Blessings,
Cheryl

These are beautiful pictures and I am glad that you didn't have to stay at the hospital overnight.

I pray that this stronger medication helps your heart rate and rhythm and that you aren't too slowed down by it!

Blessings Cathy ...

It's Not About Us Anymore said...

I am sorry that you had to go to the ER. I know it's not fun. I will be praying for you and hopefully the new meds will work.

Cathy, So sorry you are not feeling well. My sister and brother have the same thing. Afib! Stress seems to make it worse for them. So take it easy and just know thatwe will be praying for you. Love the pictures.
Hugs with much love and prayers.

Oh Cathy, I 'm so sorry you had another 'episode'. This just isn't right. (((you))) I'm thankful you're home again and sharing on your blog. I'll be keeping you in continued prayer. <><

Beautiful blossom pictures and the one of the little bird is too sweet. :o) Those are primroses, one of my favorite outdoor flowers. I really like the Fairy Primrose - has a long stem and the sweetest face. Unfortunately, in my neck of the woods, snails feast on these so I've stopped planting them. sigh.

Bless you,
jAne
